You stand watch from the tower, keeping your guard post even when all appears still and quiet. While the hour is late and it is unlikely that the enemy will attack tonight, it is your duty to keep the camp safe. At the first sign of danger, you are to sound the alarm.
Leaning on your Sentinel Spear, you stifle an exhausted yawn. You are prepared to wait and to watch for hours, but that does not make you miss your bed any less. Some coffee would be much appreciated.
Epic Armoury’s Sentinel Spear is a 180 cm latex polearm inspired by the glaive. The Sentinel Spear has a 60 cm sleek, gently curved blade that is handpainted and sculpted. A coloured gem encased in rich metal attaches the blade to the 110 cm wood-coloured pole. The pole is wrapped in soft split-leather to ensure a firm and comfortable grip, and ends with a coreless pommel for safe combat.
Made from durable closed cell foam around a fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that your LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your kit.
A form of the spear has been used for hunting for at least 400,000 years
Spears were the most common form of weaponry during the Stone Age, and remained popular until firearms were introduced
This particular design is similar to a glaive, where a single-edged blade is attached to the end of a pole

Epic Armoury’s Warrior Gambeson is a padded long-sleeve coat covering the torso from neck, down over the hips on front and back. It can be worn on its own or serve as essential padding under mail or armour. The gambeson is donned like a jacket and closed on the front with five leather straps and brass buckles, allowing the wearer to customize the tightness of the fit. The arms are easily detachable by untying its cotton cords on the shoulders and sleeves, each cord secured through long-lasting brass eyelets.
Thick enough to serve as its own armour, this sturdy gambeson is constructed with heavy layers of fluffed cotton canvas sandwiched between layers of heavy cotton canvas. All these layers are stitched together in vertical lines, keeping the padding in place and mimicking a classic European high-medieval style.
Though of European cut, gambeson or quilted-style armours have seen world-wide use since antediluvian times, making the Warrior Gambeson a great basic armour with a range of possibilities regardless of time and place.
Available in Black, Brown, Beige and White; and in sizes Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, XX-Large, 3X-Large and 4X-Large.
Quilted armours have been around since at least 400 BCE

Specific style often worn by freemen, mercenaries, and other independent warriors
This cotton twill product is diagonally woven fabric similar to denim. It is quite sturdy, built to take some abuse.
Remember to wax the leather straps before putting in a washing machine or dryer. If you are able to hand wash and leave your gambeson to dry flat, this is preferable.
Machine wash at 40°C / 104°F (warm). Wash separately the first time and with similar colours afterwards. Tumble dry on low heat, but be aware that it might shrink up to 5%. For general stains or discoloration, treat with a commercial fabric cleaner, or blot with tepid water and a soft cloth.
